Outlook and Opportunities for Graduate Education. The Final Report, with Recommendations, of the National Board of Graduate Education. Number 6.
National Board on Graduate Education, Washington, DC.
The National Board on Graduate Education (NBGE), founded in 1969, studies the issues facing graduate education, assists those concerned with graduate education in establishing sound policies, and discusses new forms and emphases that must be given to these purposes so that the contributions of graduate education can be enhanced. In this document, the NBGE first examines forces that are currently shaping the future environment for graduate education and then summarizes the principal trends foreseen. Included are recent developments in: (1) the doctoral labor market; (2) federal policy and support; (3) state policy; (4) the graduate community. Also discussed are projected trends in: (1) the labor market; (2) Ph.D. supply; (3) graduate student financial support; (4) new clientele for graduate education; (5) expanded access; and (6) accountability. It is concluded that federal, state, and institutional policies should encourage a more explicit differentiation of function among graduate programs than currently exists. (Author/KE)
